Wing span: 1 3/4 to 2 1/4 inches
A non-native species, the Cabbage White is one of the first butterflies to emerge in the spring.
The wings are white with one black spot (males) or two black spots (females), plus a dark tip on the upper forewing. Summer generations may be more strongly colored.
Look for the Cabbage White in your yard and garden or in open areas and along roadsides, where they nectar on mustard, clover and dandelion flowers.
Cabbage White caterpillars feed on plants in the mustard family (Cruciferae).
